“McLean,” an installation by Navine G. Dossos, is featured on the façade of the Institute of Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth University. The installation is part of the exhibit “So it appears” opening on Feb. 24 at the ICA, 601 W Broad St. The vinyl pieces used in the work are adapted from a series of paintings. According to the ICA’s website, “McLean, ”commissioned for the ICA’s Belvidere Street façade, is an adaptation of the artist’s former work “No Such Organization (2018-2020),” a series of 100 gouache paintings of icons and symbols. Each painting is in response to a news article following the disappearance and heinous murder, in October 2018, of journalist Jamal Khashoggi who lived in Mclean in Northern Virginia.
